Disclosure: I received an Endy Mattress in exchange for this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
You might recall that last year we switched from the Endy mattress to a Douglas. Surprise! As some may have seen we switched back to the Endy. You might be wondering who provides a better night’s sleep, Endy or Douglas? I decided to put both mattresses to the ultimate test and… secret’s out – Endy won! Now let’s talk about why.
When we switched to Douglas, we moved our Endy to our oldest daughter’s room, as it was only a few years old and still has tons of life left in it. She ended up loving it so much, there was no way she was giving it back. Now both my kids are having an amazing night’s sleep every night on their Endy mattresses but I was left with one unhappy husband, AND I still couldn’t get a good night’s sleep…
If we’re being honest here, the Douglas mattress was a bit too firm for our liking. We needed something that accomodated a back sleeper and a combo sleeper and gave our bodies more of a “gentle hug” than the Douglas was offering. My sleep wasn’t horrible, however I was still having problems and my husband was miserable.
We were left with the choice… For the best night’s sleep … Endy or Douglas?
My husband was not sleeping well, and since I was not getting my best night’s sleep, there was no way I was achieving my running goals. Post-run recovery is extremely important when training for a marathon, and I was suffering by not giving my body the chance to fully recover. We had a big decision to make… Endy or Douglas?
We’ve talked about it before, but Endy’s Comfort Foam has a unique, breathable open-cell foam layer that is highly responsive. This means it delivers cool and amazingly comfortable support and eliminates motion transfer in real-time. I’m a fairly active sleeper, so on the nights when I’m tossing and turning, my husband sleeps completely undisturbed.
We found the Douglas Mattress too firm; there was no give or softness to cushion the movement at all. My husband sleeps on his back for the most part, so for him, sleeping on the Douglas Mattress felt like sleeping on a piece of plywood. On a cellular level, Endy’s open-air cell foam provides optimal comfort, firmness, and support, without pressure points, making it the perfect solution for back sleepers and even combo side/back sleepers like me.
As I mentioned, I sleep quite hot. While the Douglas mattress uses cooling gel foam, I found I still wasn’t cool enough to sleep comfortably. I’ve implemented a few lifestyle changes in the hopes of having a cooler sleep. I’ve started running earlier in the day, drinking more water and using Endy’s Organic Cotton Duvet and Sheets.
Making the change to Endy’s 100% organic cotton sheets alongside their 100% Vegan Alternative duvet, which is both breathable and hypoallergenic, has granted me my greatest sleep wish: a cooler body temperature. This means I’m moving less and sleeping more soundly than ever before, which makes me a better wife and mom.
So who provides a Better Night’s Sleep? Endy or Douglas?
Both brands have similar features, such as a zip-off machine washable cover, and pillows you’re able to customize for your sleep preference. However, when you boil it down, the biggest selling feature is, of course, comfort. Our Endy Mattress is so comfortable, and it seems like we sleep better on it every single night! I wake up feeling supported and my hubby wakes up happy and ready to seize the opportunity to drop the Dad jokes!
So the final thoughts on Endy or Douglas? It’s truly a no-brainer. We made the switch back to Endy because we found the Douglas mattress was not providing us with the support, temperature control, and zero motion transfer that we both needed to get the rest we deserved. The Endy mattress and pillows perfectly accommodate both of our individual sleep styles. We are both very physically active people and having the proper support from our Endy mattress allows us to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, so we can wake up well rested and ready to play harder.
Every morning we wake up feeling well-rested and like a better version of the person we were yesterday. Trust me when I say switching back to the Endy mattress has been the greatest gift in our marriage. The positives for Endy in our opinion far outweigh the positives for Douglas, better sleeps = happier people, which makes for a happier marriage, and thus a happier family!
